Favourite quote? Our reluctant hero Richard Mayhew suddenly finds himself having to undergo the ordeal of the key, as set by the monks....p.184
"The Abbot raised his blind head, sniffed the air, smiled. 'The first part of the Ordeal of the Key,' he said, 'is the nice cup of tea. Do you take sugar?'
'No, thank you,' said Richard, warily. [...]
Richard sipped the tea, which tasted more or less exactly like tea. 'But this is part of the ordeal?'
'In a matter of speaking. We always like to give the seekers a cup of tea before they start. Part of the ordeal for us. Not for you.' The Abbot sipped his own tea, and a beatific smile spread across his ancient face. 'Rather nice tea, all things considered.'"
The book will travel back home tomorrow. Thanks again for lending it to me!
